Chapter 1. Mac Os X Annoyances > FAX MULTIPLE FILES WITH ONE PHONE CALL

FAX MULTIPLE FILES WITH ONE PHONE CALL

The Annoyance:

I use Panther's built-in fax feature, but it forces me to fax each file separately. It's not only annoying, but it adds to my long distance bill. I'm not interested in creating a beautiful desktop publishing page layout containing everything-I just want to fax multiple documents.

The Fix:

You get what you pay for. Though accessible from the Print dialog, Panther's free fax software is rather disappointing, providing minimal features and no hidden extras. However, for a mere $30, you can buy Page Sender from SmileOnMyMac (http://www.smileonmymac.com) and use it to combine multiple files into a single fax. It does this by treating additional documents as attachments. Basically, you choose Print for the first document you want to fax and then select Page Sender as your printer in the Print dialog box. Then all you need to do is click the Attachments button to add the other files to the fax. You can even set the order in which the documents will be faxed by dragging them around in the Attachments list (see Figure 1-11).
